Academy of American Poets: Poetry & the Creative Mind

April 28, 2022 @ 7:30 pm PDT

Each year during National Poetry Month in April, the Academy of American Poets presents a signature celebration of poetry’s important place in our culture and its impact on the lives of readers.

On April 28, 2022, the 19th annual Poetry & the Creative Mind will be exclusively presented online at 7:30 p.m. EDT, making it available to poetry readers and lovers everywhere. RSVP to attend live for free.
Poetry & the Creative Mind features leading and legendary actors, dancers, artists, musicians, and public figures sharing their favorite poems. Past readers have included Uzo Aduba, Sam Beam, Wayne Brady, Glenn Close, Claire Danes, Tina Fey, Terrance Howard, Bill T. Jones, Maya Lin, Paul Simon, Patti Smith, Uma Thurman, and Carrie Mae Weems, as well as frequent Honorary Event Co-chair Meryl Streep.

This always-inspiring evening benefits the K–12 Education Program of the Academy of American Poets, which reaches more than 100,000 students each year with resources on Poets.org, the Dear Poet project, and materials created for National Poetry Month.

Poetry & the Creative Mind is made possible thanks to the support of individuals and the event’s corporate sponsors, including the publishers and companies helping to champion poetry and expand its readership of all ages as part of The Publishers Circle and The Young Readers Circle.
